Liverton Road

This image shows the road to Liverton Mines and off to the right the road to the station, in the foreground is the foundry. Not a clear photograph, but in the middle of the foundry building the round structure of the cupola for melting the pig iron can be seen. A walk around Loftus and district,  can be seen many cast iron drain covers stamped either ‘Robinson Bros.’ or the later ‘Tinsley’. A unique example of this foundry’s output can be seen in Loftus Old Cemetery, where their specialised cast iron grave markers can be seen; it is well worth a visit.
